How to Celebrate Halloween at Home

Normally, the town of Conover is filled with spooky, seasonal events throughout October that let families like yours celebrate the haunts of Halloween with your community. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, public gatherings aren’t encouraged in North Carolina, so it’s a wise idea to stay home and limit your party to just close relatives.

To help make the month special, here are some ideas for how you can celebrate Halloween at home with your loved ones.

Themed dinner

Stage an elaborate themed dinner party in which the dishes and plating have spooky inspirations: bloody mocktails, “finger” foods, and oozing dips are great inclusions. You can even play a murder mystery role-playing activity afterward.

Carve pumpkins

A favorite activity for us at Village Motors of Conover, our staff loves picking and etching shapes in pumpkins to display in the window. Bored of carving only pumpkins every year? Use this as an opportunity to carve other fruits or vegetables. Challenge your family to come up with the most creative food to carve.

Gingerbread haunted house

Gingerbread houses aren’t just for Christmas; you can also make a haunted graveyard out of cookies and icing! Use cotton candy as cobwebs, strawberry jelly as blood splatters, or candy skulls for skeletons — your options are only limited by your creativity!

We at Village Motors of Conover wish you and your family a safe, festive Halloween. And if you need a new family SUV or car at a price that won’t scare you, browse our selection of affordable used cars.
